My work lies somewhere between the imaginary and the real and can veer in either direction. It doesn’t matter.

Recently I have been researching the concept of ‘Forest” and the myths that came from the ancient forests of Europe which I developed into drawings. At the same time I was collecting material from the woodland floor to develop a series of screenprints based on nature.

The stories led me to the forest. The forest led me to the plants. One idea feeds into another.

Printmaking provides me with a way of realizing my ideas in many ways and it is this opportunity of endless combinations that fascinates and delights me about the printmaking process.
